Front End Developer Salary Trends in the Netherlands

29 November 2022 , by Josh Nel

15.1% of developers in the Netherlands identify as front end developers, making it the third most popular role in the country. Here, we’ll look at average front end developer salaries by experience and how they compare to those for full stack developers in the country.


Average junior front end developer salary

The average salary for a junior front end developer in the Netherlands is €36 276 per year, when they have at least two years of experience. At this stage of their careers, less than one percent separates them from their full stack counterparts.

Once they’ve worked in the field for four years, they receive the most significant pay bump of their careers:

Mid-level front end developers in the Netherlands with four to six years of experience can look forward to a 37.7% increase. This gives them an average annual salary of €49 946.

Despite the significant increase, they now trail their full stack counterparts by 5.2%.

Average senior front end developer salary

While salary growth for front end developers starts to slow at the senior level, they can still expect a solid 20.7% pay bump once they pass the six years of experience mark. This gives them an average annual salary of €60 276.

As a result of this increase, they’ve now overtaken full stack developers in this experience bracket and earn 8% more.

Senior front end developers in the Netherlands see their salary growth continue to slow after they’ve been in the business for more than ten years.

Senior front end developers with ten to fifteen years of experience see a 5.6% increase for an average salary of €63 629.

Keep in mind

The data in this article is taken from open data from StackOverflow’s 2022 Developer Survey. In this article, ‘salary’ refers to the gross annual salary (before tax) provided by 286 survey respondents from the Netherlands who identified as front end developers.

We only included salary insights for experience levels with enough data points to ensure that the amounts are representative of front end developers in the country. That’s why we excluded salaries for entry-level developers in this article.

We also ran an outlier analysis to identify data points skewing the distribution of salaries. These points were removed from the final dataset to ensure that the amounts are representative of front end developers in the Netherlands.

Average salaries are single data points and only one part of a bigger story. Many respondents may earn significantly more or significantly less than these averages. However, we hope to track underlying trends by mapping the average salaries for different experience levels.

These averages should not be used to estimate what your actual salary will or should be.

Salaries are dependent on the company size, industry, individual, perks and nature of work. These factors all influence the salary a company will offer to a prospective hire. In addition, most developers are “fluent” in several languages and work across multiple roles, which will affect the final figures.

It’s also important to remember that every individual’s context is different. Salary is a personal conversation that should take place between employee and employer.
